Tutorial: Installing a basic zipper, plus a cool tip to make it easier

Ashley from Make It and Love It shares a tutorial on her blog showing how to install a zipper.  Her tutorial is aimed at beginning sewers who have been avoiding zippers, thinking they’re too difficult to install.  (They’re actually way easier than you’d think.)  On the other hand, advanced sewers will appreciate her non-pinning method for keeping the zipper in place while it’s being stitched down.  (I know I’ll be giving this a try on my next zipper!)  Get the how-to.

    Thank you for sharing this with others. I’ve been doing this for 50 years, having done this as a home economics major in college.
